Scottish Salmon Producers Organisation welcomes 10 year Farmed Fish Health Framework
Julie Hesketh-Laird, chief executive of Scottish Salmon Producers Organisation (SSPO) said:
“The Farmed Fish Health Framework is the result of industry, Government and regulator collaboration to set out the way ahead to ensure that farmed fish health achieves and maintains the very high standards that we aspire to in Scotland. The Framework recognises the valuable work that industry is already undertaking, sets out actions to be put in place, but importantly, looks ahead so that the industry and its stakeholders develop more open and transparent communication and understanding so that salmon farming can progress sustainably and successfully.”
The Strategic Framework for Farmed Fish Health in Scotland was produced by the Farmed Fish Health Working Group, co-chaired by Ben Hadfield, MD of Marine Harvest Scotland Ltd, and Professor Colin Moffat, Head of Science, Marine Scotland.
